Sky Italy .
“Ronaldo had a lot of kicks on the target and Sorrentino made a number of saves and he also showed good moves that were not taken advantage of by the socks.These moves need to be read by the other players.What impressed me most was the way he fit the team. He was very pleased in the locker room and had his opportunities, “he added.
